The Mirage

Blurb:

Abbii can’t remember a time when Shadows weren’t chasing her.

Everywhere she goes they are there, hunting her down.

Since discovering the magical powers in her grasp, she has fought against members of the Forgotten- those pulled into Darkness willingly- and her friends have fallen into danger. Innocent people have lost their lives and the Shadows have spread. Abbii’s friends have fought to remain by her side, but something inside of her has changed.

She is filled with regret and pain of losing her best friend Jake, though she keeps it hidden well- not even Nate can see the damage. Her lack of emotion pushes him to leave and he is thrown into his own spiralling destiny. Continue reading

My Interview with Clemy Warner-Thompson

C Warner-Thompson1. Tell us a little about The Mirage?

It is sequel to The Star- a fantasy book which introduces Abbii, an eighteen year old who discovers that she has powers and decides to go on the run to search for the answers she seeks. The Mirage follows on directly, proving that even with the information she’s found, Abbii is more lost than ever. She longs for the one person she’ll never forget- her best friend Jake, though will she allow Darkness to consume her so that she can find him? It is a story of friendship, betrayal and the power one has within their emotions.

2. What was the inspiration for The Star and The Mirage?

All of my work, including these two books, are based on the differences between Light and Darkness- not just as elements but the good and evil within every person. I wanted to write a tale that explained that even if you are ‘good’, things happen that may change the way you think. Even if you lose your way and question everything in your life, that ‘good’ still remains. Life is what you make it, after all. Through Abbii’s eyes, I tell a tale of how easy it is for each and every one of us to lose our way, but also the clear fact that things will get better. You just have to believe in yourself.

3. Who do you see yourself as the most in your books?

I guess every writer sees a bit of themselves in each of their characters, I’m no different. Abbii feels lost and doesn’t know how to make the life she wants- I have never known what career I wanted or how to get through the toughest of times. Nate and Jake stand for determination- no matter how tough times have been or will be in the future, I’m not giving up. Max, Alice, even the twins, they are all parts of the person I am, though not the person I necessarily show. Let’s just see how the reader interprets them. Continue reading

Abbii has a choice- to stay by her friends’ sides and fight to protect their home, or leave the realm she knows and search for those that she has lost. Her heart is broken but her friends cannot help her. She has to choose between searching for Jake in the Dark, or whether to return to Nate’s side and keep the Light burning brightly.

The question is, will Light be able to save her from the Darkness within? Continue reading
